This small studio was the perfect stay for my brother and me. We are in our 60's and the comfortable twin beds with a choice of pillows was great. The short walk to the beach was just right. We stopped at one of the two ABC stores each morning to get lunch items, and spent the day on the beach. The purchase of $30 sand chairs at the store on day one was perfect. Our first room was right next to the elevator and this was crazy noisy. We asked right away for another room and we were given one with no problem. If they were more booked, this might have been an issue, so we will request NOT to be by elevator when we book again. The front dest staff is uber helpful and friendly. The elevator monitors are too. This was a great, relaxed, unpretentious place to stay, in a good location near the beach. I think all rooms have some sort of view of the beach. The tiny kitchen was just right for cooking eggs each morning. There was a rice cooker which came in handy when we had restaurant left overs. Also toaster, coffee maker and blender. We mostly ate out, however there were a couple nights we called out for delivery. The pool was clean and warm, and the spa relaxing. We looked forward to the tidy pool area after the beach each day. The sun shines up on the roof until almost sunset. Really nice breeze and loungers made this a daily ritual. Internet was good both in the room and up at the pool. We did feel that the $25 daily amenities fee was a little much. For what? Nothing that a regular hotel does not provide. The maid service is only once a week. You can, however, request fresh towels and more shampoo etc. But again, doesn't every hotel offer that without an extra fee?

The hotel has an excellent location and the staff were both helpful and cheerful. I enjoyed my stay. Our balcony made he room even better with a wonderful view of the beach at Waikiki. Close proximity to shop and restaurants was a plus for us.

This was my first time at the Pacific Monarch. I've stayed several times next door at the Bamboo, but this time the difference in price was enough to make me try it out. The room was a studio condo. Having a kitchenette and a sitting area was nice. I would have liked a proper balcony you could actually sit out on. The COVID-19 restrictions meant no maid service so they left a large garbage can out in the hallway. They only have two elevators for 32 floors, so you WILL BE WAITING FOR ELEVATORS! It's in an excellent location, Kuhio and Ulunui is my favorite corner for quick access to the best part of Waikiki Beach.

It should be illegal how differently this hotel is representing themselves on their website and what you actually get. Our room looked nothing like the pictures- instead it was furnished with mismatched thrift store finds. The sofa bed was stained, and the mattress was a 2 inch piece of cheap foam. My son woke up with bruises each morning from the bed frame poking through the mattress. We did not have the cooktop in the kitchen (however, we were provided with cooking pots, go figure) or a desk in the living area. The carpet in the hallways were worn and dirty. We did not receive beach chairs, tickets to the museum or chilled water as promised in their ads. While I understand that COVID may have changed the way things are handled now, they are still charging the full $25 “resort” fee each day. You also don’t get daily maid service. Again, I understand the limitations currently, but the pricing should reflect this. If I knew how run-down the room would have been beforehand, we would have booked a different hotel.

I just stayed here with my partner two nights ago. As another reviewer says, you get what you pay for. For $100 more, you could stay in a place with updated, modern décor with a newer pool and jacuzzi. For $100 less, you could stay in a motel or possibly a youth hostel. So the Pacific Monarch is in that niche right in between. If you have to pay extra to get an oceanfront room on a high floor, it’s probably well worth it. You would get a great view, and I’ve found that the view makes a huge difference in the enjoyment of your hotel stay (I live in Hawaii and have done countless staycations in Waikiki). I did enjoy the lounge on the floor just below the rooftop pool. As others have mentioned, you have to be extremely rule-abiding with the parking, which costs $30 per night. The front desk clerk makes you read and sign a form with all the rules, she goes over the rules verbally, and there is a big sign in Japanese right where you pay for the parking permit, which I assume lists those rules again. And, there are signs posted around the parking garage saying that you MUST park within the lines, or you will be towed. What else can get your car towed? Placing your parking permit upside down in the windshield! I don’t mean having the slip face the wrong way so that no one can read the information, I mean turning it upside down so that the information shows, but it’s upside down. And of course, if you don’t tape it to the windshield and the slip falls down to a position where it can’t be read – YOU WILL BE TOWED. As I mentioned, I’ve stayed all over Waikiki, and almost no parking garage has rules this draconian. You can read another reviewer’s horrendous experience after he got his car towed (and his vacation ruined, and you can bet he will be telling everyone he knows about his ordeal). The hotel says the parking is run by “someone else” so they claim no responsibility - zero. That is a cop-out. The hotel could use their influence to contract with a different parking operator or a different tow company. There is no reason they have to be bullied into submission by the parking operators. I almost cancelled our reservation after reading about what happened to the poor guest who had his car towed – how many potential guests are they losing out on because of that one review? It’s pennywise and pound foolish, and not worth the bad publicity. Ease up on the rules, just a little, to be in line with almost every other parking garage in Waikiki.

Aloha swLUM Mahalo for submitting your review and glad you enjoyed your stay, and yes, the view is a big plus in many staycations! We also thank you for mentioning the parking information. Because we are not included in the decisions or rules of this privately owned garage, we inform our guests before parking- so they will not have any unforseen situations. We thank you for your understanding and hope to see you again! Mahalo Team Pacific Monarch
